We are dedicated to helping our patients lose weight and live healthier lives through dietary changes, exercise and health risk-factor reduction.

We offer two weight-loss programs for our patients, as well as a maintenance program once your weight-loss goals have been reached. We work with you to determine which is best for you at an initial information meeting.

The medically supervised decision-free diet program

This program is designed for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or who need to lose more than 30 pounds.

The weight loss diet is made completely of HMR shakes, entrees and meal replacement products. The average weight loss is 50 to 60 pounds, though patients who follow this program may lose 100 pounds or more.

Participants receive a high level of support while they learn and practice new behaviors.

The healthy solutions diet program

This program is intended for people who have to lose 30 pounds or less, or individuals who want a more moderate weight-loss plan that doesn’t require medical supervision.

The daily diet plan includes HMR shakes and entrees, as well as fruits and vegetables. Participants weigh in weekly and attend support classes, but generally, ongoing medical supervision is not required.

The average weight loss in this program is 35 to 40 pounds, although many participants lose more. As in all our programs, long-term weight maintenance is emphasized.
